Is there any way to show a total count of interfaces that are in status "up" on a cisco router?
The purpose is to let a script go through all routers and show a summarization count of "up" interfaces.
You can show all interfaces that are up by:
show interfaces status | include connected
Then your script can count them.
show interfaces status cli command shows you all interfaces. The interfaces that are "up" are in the
connected state. The
| include connected shows only the lines of the output that contain the word "connected".
Newer Cisco IOS contain a
count parameter that can count lines which match a regex. This is not available on all IOS versions.
